|Avocado inside-out roll.|
A bamboo mat to roll the sushi. Wrap the bamboo mat in plastic wrap for easy cleanup. The nori sheets are pretty large, so for the simple rolls I was making today I cut them in half. You can leave them whole if you are doing the larger rolls with more filling.
I steamed some carrots and sliced up some cucumber and avocado.
And, of course, you will need sushi rice.
I cooked 1 cup of brown rice in 2 cups of water. When it was done cooking I added in 2 Tbsp. of rice wine vinegar and fluffed the rice with a fork until it had begun to cool.
In total, I made carrot, avocado and cucumber rolls.
Why bother making sushi at home? For me the big plus is I can totally leave out the wasabi. I hate the taste of horseradish - blek!
